I’m very glad for July to be over. It was not an easy month for me. Work was quite the beast and August brings a deep breath of relief. So while July around here was a little more than completely dead, I feel inspired for August.
To cut to the chase, in July, we reviewed:
And I promise we’ll have some non-reviews next month!
I had listed eight books that I wanted to read in July. Even though today is the third of the month, I’m going to go ahead and count these past three days as July. What–I can do that! So I finished The One, Evil Under the Sun, The Cuckoo’s Calling, Half a King, Island of a Thousand Mirrors, and Solstice. I’m working on finishing Ink Exchange and We’re All Infected: Essays on AMC’s The Walking Dead and the Fate of the Human. It shouldn’t take too long. But in addition to those books, I hope to read:
- Landline by Rainbow Rowell, an audiobook I won during Armchair BEA and already halfway through
- We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, our August book club pick
- Captain Alatriste by Arturo Perez-Reverte, the oldest book on my Goodreads’ TBR
- Lucky Us by Amy Bloom, a Netgalley book that I requested to help rectify my horrible approval/feedback ratio
- Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night by Barbara J. Taylor, a Goodreads’ giveaway win
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, my random pick for the month and to read something lighter
So that’s another eight books for August. Considering that I’m only like 30ish pages away from finishing the essays on The Walking Dead, I think I can manage. However, I start graduate school at the end of August! Aaaah! Who knows what kind of impact that will have on my joy-reading…so stay tuned!
